Super-Villains Then & Now

Today's treat is a one-page retrospective from The Amazing World of DC Comics #11 (April 1974), which compares Golden Age villains with their modern counterparts.

Lex Luthor and the Joker are obvious and effective choices, but who would have expected Star Sapphire?
The Carol Ferris and Secret Society versions of Star Sapphire are familiar enough to readers by 1974, but the original has only two prior appearances -- All-Flash #32 (January 1948) and Comic Cavalcade #29 (November 1948) -- and is not seen again until Brave and the Bold #6 (March 2000).
